People are often unreasonable and self-centered.. Forgive them anyway
If you are kind.. people may accuse you of ulterior motives.. Be kind anyway
If you are honest... people may cheat you... Be honest anyway
If you find happiness... people may be jealous.... Be happy anyway
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow....... Do good anyway
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.. Give your best anyway
For you see.. in the end.. it is between you and God.. It was never between you and them anyway
( Mother Teresa )
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it
Life is beauty, admire it
Life is a dream, realize it
Life is a challenge, meet it
Life is a duty, complete it
Life is a game, play it
Life is a promise, fulfill it
Life is sorrow, overcome it
Life is a song, sing it
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it
Life is an adventure, dare it
Life is luck, make it
Life is too precious, do not destroy it
Life is life, fight for it
( Mother Teresa )

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can. - Author Unknown
Don't wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater. - Mary Manin Morrissey
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. - Alexander Graham Bell
So celebrate what you've accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed. - Mia Hamm
If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. - Flavia Weedn
You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream; you've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself. - Diana Ross
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. - F. Outlaw
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx
What you are is God's gift to you, what you make of yourself is your gift to God. - Jewish Proverb
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
~ Aristotle ~
"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."
~ George Bernard Shaw ~
"People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success."
~ Norman Vincent Peale ~
"There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it."
~ Napoleon Hill ~
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
~ Leo Buscaglia ~
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
~ Lao Tzu ~
"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr. ~
Forget mistakes. Forget failure. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day."
~ Will Durant ~
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
"Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it."
-Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.
-Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
-The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.
-Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.
-True happiness... is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt and dance
like no one is watching.
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
Alexander Graham Bell
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon
the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.
